Los Angeles, CA (September 21, 2016) -- Snorkel Dreams: A Machine Project Guide to Art Underwater is a group show of artist works presented in partnership with the City of Santa Monica. The exhibition will be showcased underwater in the pool at the Annenberg Beach House. The pool will be open to the public for swimming and underwater viewing.
A public art project curated by Machine Project--an experimental non-profit art space based in Los Angeles--Snorkel Dreams explores the public pool as a civic and creative space to exhibit works of art.
The show provides an experiential shift in where and how we observe and view art, creating a heightened sense of engagement and a completely immersive art viewing experience. Participants will have the option to view the art both in and out of the pool--swimming above and around the variety of works. This project marks the first time underwater art has been presented at the Annenberg Community Beach House.
The works on display will consist of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, video, photography, and an architectural model. Selected artwork will be from well-known and emerging artists.
Artists include Andrew Cannon, Jessica Cowley, Bob Dornberger, Emily Joyce, Alice Könitz, Candice Lin, Becca Lofchie, Johnston Marklee, Jennifer Moon & Laub, Paul Pescador, Jen Rochlin, Sune Woods, Kim Ye, Patricia Yossen, Mallen&Gray, and Machine Project with Grace Eunchong.
